A valid rant, to be sure. I've been through roughly five GIs, and it wasn't until my latest, 8 years in, that I was Rx'd a steroid enema, which I found to be notably effective (unlike Rowasa, for me). I don't understand why it wouldn't be standard protocol to use a non-systemic steroid such as Cortenema before hammering people with prednisone (although no doubt there is some level of systemic absorption with the enema). Good luck in finding a more suitable physician.
